|Location||: Aegean Sea between Karpathos and Rhodes islands|
The Greek Coast Guard has reported that a 35-year-old crew member went missing earlier this week from a Liberian-flagged chemical tanker M/T Histria Ambra. The 40,345 deadweight ton (dwt) tanker vessel is owned and managed by Romania-based Histria Shipmanagement.
A rescue operation was undertaken by the Greek patrol boat EL.AKT, but they couldn’t succeed. On Wednesday 26th August 2015, there was a report of an unidentified male body discovered by Rhodes port authorities in the Prasonisi area. Later the body was identified as the missing crew member by the ship’s master. The Hellenic Coast Guard (HCG) is to investigate the actual cause of death while the ship was sailing across the Aegean Sea between Karpathos and Rhodes Islands.
